Boris Johnson will resign as United Kingdom Prime Minister today, OduNews can confirm.
The Prime Minister is expected to give a resignation statement outside No 10 Downing Street later.
This is coming after waves of resignation by top members of his cabinet who cited a loss of trust in Johnson’s administration.
The revolt this week was triggered by revelations about the prime minister’s handling of sexual misconduct allegations against former Deputy Chief Whip Chris Pincher.
“The job of a prime minister in difficult circumstances, when he has been handed a colossal mandate, is to keep going, and that’s what I’m going to do,” he had said.
The delegation included Grant Shapps, transport secretary; Simon Hart, Welsh secretary; Brandon Lewis, Northern Ireland secretary; and Chris Heaton-Harris, chief whip.
Nadhim Zahawi, the new chancellor who replaced Rishi Sunak, was also believed to be in the delegation.
Johnson became prime minister in July 2019 after winning a Tory leadership contest and went on to win a historic landslide general election victory five months after that.
He won the election vowing to “get Brexit done” but his government has been dogged by a series of controversies in recent months, not least a police investigation into parties in Downing Street during the lockdown.
